Visualizing Data With Google API
Creating richer, more rewarding interactive experiences for your audience is one of the primary goals of advanced data visualization. Google’s Application Program Interfaces (APIs) allow you to customize your users interactions using visualization tools such as Google Chart Tools and Google Fusion Tables.
Visualizing Data with Google APIs is a two-day, hands-on Certificate program focused on using Google’s Visualization and Fusion Tables APIs. Participants will learn to use the APIs, load data from Google Spreadsheets and Tables and add user interactions like search and filtering to interactive graphics.
You’ll enjoy personalized small class instruction in a state of the art Mac lab. This program is a hands-on skill based learning experience. Upon completion of a Berkeley Advanced Media Institute workshop, participants have the knowledge and tools necessary to apply their new skill set immediately.
- Learn to load APIs into an HTML page.
- Load data from Google Spreadsheets and Fusion Tables.
- Make data and/or visualizations searchable and filterable.
